C.P. McDillDjinnestan - Kittenhead [wh080]

something has gone horribly wrong 8-p
Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

Kittenhead is the latest long-form (CD-length) production by Djinnestan, departing significantly from the Rain series and Purr. In many ways, it defies easy categorization. It is very ambient, but contains rhythms. It is dark, yet at the same time whimsical. It includes acoustic instruments and vocals, but they have been processed virtually beyond recognition. Nonetheless it is a subtle and pleasant listen.

Djinnestan is an ambient recording project of C.P. McDill and Aria Nadii. The audio style of Djinnestan is a blend of heavily processed acoustic recordings and often obscure samples. It is a sound art "group" that formed in 2003 as a spin-off of C.P. McDill's Saluki Regicide, with a particular focus on tranquil and ethereal ambient textures. As of this release, the discography of Djinnestan amounts to eight releases, five of which are long-form (CD-length) ambient albums intended for play at low volumes, especially as one goes to sleep.

Subject: Pas de deux
The melodic lines of Aria Nadii's voice and instruments open up new exploration fields into McDill's rather claustrophobic atmospheres. A truly innovative and fascinating duet. Thank you both.

I really like the track starting just after 24 minutes... at this point it sucked me in nice.

Subject: Great!
Unsettling, yet comforting, familiar and somehow alien, this is a disturbing release by Djinnestan.
The ambiguous and queasy refrains of "kittenhead" through the work lead you to wonder just what is going on here.
ANother fine release from Djinnestan.

Subject: Fantabulous!
A rich flight through alien soundscapes, like roaming through cities and fields filled with unimaginable birds of fantasy!

Bravo!
